Cambridge Innovation Capital

Cambridge Innovation Capital (CIC) combines a unique relationship with the University of Cambridge with deep financial and industry links to invest in rapidly growing intellectual property rich companies in the Cambridge Cluster. CIC has an unrivalled appreciation for the application of world-leading scientific developments given its position within the Cambridge Cluster. The company is committed to building leading businesses from brilliant technologies - with the support of some of the most influential figures in the sector and a patient capital structure.

CIC is predominantly, but not exclusively, focused on healthcare and technology investment opportunities. Its focus is on companies that have received seed funding from early-stage investors and are seeking further funding to support growth. However, CIC also makes seed stage investments where the opportunity presented justifies the risk. Once a company is in the portfolio, CIC aims to support it through to maturity.
